The Predator-class Storm Cutter is a lightweight warship used by the Swords of Sanghelios in a support role. Successor the DAS-class Storm Cutter, it skirts the edge of the battlefield, searching for easy prey, or performs scouting mission, searching for, then shadowing the enemy. Ideal as both a pursuit ship, and tool for harassment, many of these ships are in the hands of Kig-Yar and Jiralhanae allies, and in both cases the Sword work hard to keep their loyalty, resulting in a mercenary mindset amongst their crews.
Though small, the vessels are a vital elements of the SOS Navy, acting as scouts, pirate chasers, or harassing enemy formations during fleet actions. Because of their low observable design, and stealth features, they also make excellent raiders, and blockade runners, ensuring the foes of the SOS never truly feel safe from them.
